Jonny Evans writes for MacWorld:
Trent Reznor’s Nine Inch Nails made $1.6 million in a week through direct sales of the band’s latest album, Ghosts I-IV.
The sales included free and paid downloads as well as orders made online for the slew of physical products the band has also made available, including boxed sets and vinyl. A special edition CD is set to ship in April in the UK.
Fans are being offered the first nine tracks taken from the album as DRM-free MP3 files at no charge. If they enjoy these they can also purchase all 36 album tracks in the DRM-free MP3 format for just $5.
